Gender?

(Anonymous)
Do you think there is any correlation between intelligence implications and the strict gender roles imposed by Christianity? Someone on here mentioned young marriages in Christian couples-- something i've witnessed firsthand-- and in all the cases I've seen, the females in the equation are either uneducated (high school at most), undereducated (college dropouts), or un-enthused by academic conquests and regard college as a timekill until they are 20. In so many words, their explanation to me is that their "calling" is to get married, start families, and be provided for and that they do not need college. If they do care to be employed, they seem to gravitate toward female-dominated professions which are usually dropped with the first child. This to me is a societal TRAGEDY. I think these girls are just as capable of being educated as any non-fundamentalist, yet reject education because from day one they are bombarded with propaganda about "callings" and "wifely duties." All these are gender-specific with higher academic standards being imposed on males all within the social paradigm of archaic family standards. It makes me sick to my stomach but I think it would be a valid point for research.
